> What to Expect Sundays

New Hope Kids is committed to helping parents build up their families in the love and knowledge of God. New Hope Kids is offered weekly during the 4:15pm service. (NOT the 6:00pm).  We offer 4 environments based on your child’s age:

Nursery (BrightSide) – Ages 0 – 5

BrightSide is what we call our church nursery.  It is offered each and every Sunday during the 4:15pm service.  More than just babysitting–your child will hear a story from the Bible and engage in hands-on activities that go along with the story!

We encourage parents to advise the nursery staff of any special needs, allergies, etc.  Should a child in nursery need his/her parent during the service, a staff member will notify the parent right away.

BrightSide (ages 0-5) is offered EVERY Sunday during the 4:15pm service.

 

Kids (WildSide) grades K – 3rd

WildSide is what we call our children’s church for students in grades Kindergarten through 3rd.  WildSide is offered during the 4:15pm service only.

WildSide is a fast-paced children’s worship service that includes worshiping God through singing, Bible lessons, crafts, games, scripture memory, and more!

WildSide runs simultaneous with the “Grown-up” worship service, so parents will register and drop off their child beforehand, and pick them up immediately following the worship service.

WildSide (grades K – 3rd) is offered each week during the 4:15pm service.

Tweens (Side by Side)- grades 4th – 6th

Side by Side is what we call our children’s church for those kids who are in 4th-6th grade. They are in be”tween” the kid years and the teen years.  It is available every Sunday during the 4:15pm service.

Side by Side, like WildSide, is a fast-paced children’s worship service that goes into even more depth into the Bible stories and scripture lessons.

Like WildSide, Side by Side runs simultaneous with the “Grown-up” worship service, so parents will register and drop off their child beforehand, and pick them up immediately following the worship service.

Side by Side (grades 4th-6th) is offered each week during the 4:15pm service.

Teens (FlipSide) – grades 7th – 12th (Note: Youth meet Friday/Saturday at separate location!)

FlipSide  is what we call our ministry to Youth.  It is available every Friday evening from 7:00-9:00pm.   This is a great environment for teenagers to discover the boundless love of God as they grow to a deeper understanding of God’s word.  We have a high school group that meets on Fridays and a middle school group that meets on Saturdays. For more information contact Andy Bertodatti, who can be reached by email.

Keeping Your Kid Safe

We take your child’s safety very seriously.  The first time your child attends one of our children’s ministry environments, you will be asked to complete a short registration card. A card must be filled out for each child in order to maintain a safe and secure environment.

When you arrive, you and your child will be greeted and checked-in by a volunteer. We will ask if you would like to receive any notices during the service via text message.  If not, a volunteer will physically come get you out of the main worship service if your presence is needed.

Be assured that the incredible volunteers serving your children have all been carefully trained and screened (criminal background check, reference checks, etc.) to provide the safest environment possible.

What To Expect On Sundays

When you arrive, you’ll see a clearly marked registration table for families to check kids safely into their groups. Our volunteers will help you through the process of registering each child, answering questions you may have, and escorting your kids to the correct group. You’re welcome to meet the people who will teach your kids and tour the environment where they will stay.

Within the group, a small group leader will immediately engage your kid in conversation or play to help them feel welcome and at ease. While you’re in the worship service, your kid will hear an entertaining and educational presentation of a Bible story, engage in hands-on learning activities, sing and dance to fun music, and listen to or recite weekly Bible verses.

Contact us if you have any concerns or questions.
